Marketplace’s Jed Kim and New York Times deputy tech editor Quentin Hardy play “Long and Short,” explaining what they think has staying power and what’s on its way out from this week’s news.

This time around: new technology in the workplace, climate change, the Internet of Things, Christmas shopping and sports.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
